Share Joy Challenge #43


I have this week's Share Joy Challenge to share with you, today! Whenever there is the option for Tic-Tac-Toe, I feel the need to do it. I don't know why, but there it is. I went with the top row, going to the right, check it out...

I knew I wanted to use the Build-a-Scene - Trees die set, but noticed the actual tree top shape was smaller than I needed it to be for a good shaker window, so, I simply die cut it three times to form a larger opening. I added some blue Distress Ink around the edges, and adhered the Stitched Scallop piece that I had die cut from Peapod Card Stock to the bottom of the panel. I tied some twine around it, and then added a piece of acetate, and foam tape to my shaker window.  

I sprinkled in some sequins, and stars, and covered it with more acetate before adhering the whole panel to a white card base with more foam tape. I had also stamped my sentiment earlier in the process, when it was flat on my desk. All of the supplies I used are listed below!

I hope you've enjoyed, and are inspired to play along with us this week! Have a good one, friends!
